The moonbats in control of the US Armed Forces are planning a big party to celebrate the triumph of depravity:
In the latest remarkable sign of change since the military repealed the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, the Defense Department will soon hold its first event to recognize gay and lesbian troops. … Details are still being worked out, but officials say Defense Secretary Leon Panetta wants to honor the contributions of gay service members.
Don’t worry about the effect on morale. The communist-affiliated Panetta assures us that, according to the servile PC toadies strategically placed atop the command structure, there hasn’t been any.
Basic changes have come rapidly since repeal; the biggest is that gay and lesbian soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines no longer have to hide their sexuality in order to serve. They can put photos on their office desk without fear of being outed, attend social events with their partners and openly join advocacy groups looking out for their interests.
These advocacy groups will ensure that homosexuals receive the special privileges enjoyed by other officially favored groups. They will be first in line for promotion and last to receive discipline — or there will be legal repercussions.
At West Point, the alumni gay advocacy group Knights Out was able to hold the first installment in March of what is intended to be an annual dinner in recognition of gay and lesbian graduates and Army cadets. Gay students at the U.S. Naval Academy were able to take same-sex dates to the academy’s Ring Dance for third-year midshipmen.
Under liberal rule, the military is not meant or even allowed to win wars; it is a social engineering laboratory. We are approaching the point where no real soldier will be willing to disgrace the memory of his country by taking part in the farce.
